Ghana: NPP will dispel "rebel" members

The National Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Lord Commey, has disclosed that the party would soon fire its members, including Members of Parliament (MP) who are contesting upcoming Parliamentary elections as independent candidates.

"Any member of this great party who has decided to contest next month’s parliamentary election as independent candidate is a rebel, he or she is not part of us and very soon, they would be expelled to form their independent party," Mr. Commey stressed.

[...] The Chronicle has gathered that by the next two or three weeks, the NPP headquarters may expel about 30 of its members who were contesting the parliamentary elections as independent candidates. (source)
